Um, That Kid from That’s So Raven is Missing

This is an odd story.

Orlando Brown, Raven-Symone’s co-star on That’s So Raven, has been missing since Tuesday morning.

The 20-year-old reportedly left his manager’s house around 10:20 a.m. to make a quick trip to 7-Eleven and has not been seen since. According to Brown’s publicist, Elayne Rivers, he had a full day of meetings and appointments in preparation for a photo shoot Wednesday.

Rivers adds that friends and family are very concerned, as the young actor is not one to be out of touch for long, and the convenience store was within a short walking distance from his manager’s home in Studio City.

I’ll make funny jokes about this once it turns out this kid is safe and sound in some crack house. Until then, if you have information about his whereabouts, you’re supposed to email Elayne Rivers at

Yes Of COURSE Star Jones Is Filing For Divorce

I take a sick pleasure in this sort of thing. When famous people’s marriages fail, it makes me feel less sad about being pathetically single.

Star Jones has filed for divorce from her husband of four years, Al Reynolds.

Says Jones in a statement:

“Several years ago I made an error in judgment by inviting the media into the most intimate area of my life. A month ago I filed for divorce. The dissolution of a marriage is a difficult time in anyone’s life that requires privacy with one’s thoughts. I have committed myself to handling this situation with dignity and grace and look forward to emerging from this period as a stronger and wiser woman.”

For those of you who are willing to exist in the same reality where Scarlett Johansson records an entire album of Tom Waits covers, we now have six of the album’s tracks streaming. Listen to them here.

The full album drops May 20, on which date President Bush will release his book of fart jokes, Paula Abdul will move into her position as the U.S. Drug Czar, Mary-Kate Olsen will defend her PhD thesis in comparative literature (full title: “Ethical and Aesthetic Elements in Sartre’s Roads to Freedom Vol. I Age of Reason and the Influence of Hemingway on this Novel”) and a young chimpanzee trained by Dakota and Elle Fanning will win the National Spelling Bee.

Me? I’ll be hiding in a storm shelter somewhere, waiting for the reality I know and love to return.

Is That a Baby Bump, Nicole?

Either Nicole Kidman isn’t actually pregnant, or she is dead set on not letting us get even a half-decent shot of her baby bump.

She hasn’t even gained an ounce of weight since she announced her pregnancy. I refuse to believe that she’s actually knocked up until I see a full-on shot of that baby bump.

Here she is at the UN, discussing a new UNIFEM Campaign Against Violence Against Women.

Mama on the Move

Nicole Richie hits the streets of LA in an airplane-themed dress. Yeah, those are airplanes on the dress. And one of the airplanes says “Chanel” on its wing. I don’t understand it, but I kind of like it.
